    Well, I put it this way.
    If you are trading on margins, you have the leverage to short the market.

    The concept remains the same: BUY LOW, SELL HIGH.
    The process is reversed in Shorting or SHORT SELLING: Instead of buying first and then selling, you sell first and then buy later predicting that the market will go down.

    You make money by predicting that the market will go down, selling it at current price and buying it later at a lower price. The phenomenon? Sell High, Buy Low.

    If you are not trading on margin, a good way to stop making losses is to use Tether(a stable crypto currency) to your advantage. We'll discuss this in a new post.

    Would be nice if there was more exchanges that allowed shorting, specially for altcoins. There's so many I think aren't worthy of being in the top 100.

    We can argue as well at this moment if we are not in the same point as Bitcoin was in 2014/2015. If you bought BTC then, with price ~ $ 240 and sold at last year peak, you would have made something like 7 500% profit.

    You can make money in a bearish market if you know what you are doing.
    As a matter of fact, it's where you can accumulate the most before we return to a bull market.

    I am using Bitfinex for now. That's good.
    Bitmex looks good too although I haven't tried yet.

    I have yet to leverage the leverage they offer in margin trading

    I have a few friends using Bitmex. Seems to be okay for shorting.

    I know about them, but don't want to make more accounts. We desperately need an exchange that does it all: margin trading, leverage trading and has all alts listed and available to margin/leverage trade as well.

    Hi, I can tell that it is necessary to consider and analyze much to earn in this way. There are services which allow to minimize these risks and also bots which send signals can test bibitbot. There give free days on the test, you will look how it looks. Whether precisely so you want to earn
